From a 2x4 to a whole room, there are opportunities everyone can afford. I really admire the Associations tradition of getting involved with Habitat for Humanity, said Glenn Davis, branch manager of Kohl Building Products, a Home Show sponsor. Everyone works together to make housing affordable for worthy families. Manufacturers are constantly updating. Even if you came to the Show a few years ago, there

    are plenty of new products for homeowners to discover, said Davis. Kohl Building Products will offer a kitchen and bath display. Dont forget to fill out the back of your admission ticket. Its your entry for door prizes! Exhibitor gifts worth at least $50 will be given away periodically through the show. A $1,000 Wolf Furniture gift certificate will be drawn at 7 p.m. Saturday, and the grand prize of a 42-inch Sony HD TV, donated by ABC 23, Fox 8, and ThisTV will be drawn at the end of the show.

Members of the Builders Association meet higher standards, and are committed to customer service. With Association members, you know there is insurance, bondingthat theyll be around next year to do repairs, said Don Gilmore of
